Presentation Overview

By 2030, the number of people above the age of 75 will move from 6% of the population to 14% of the population. People are living longer and ‘better’ and are moving into aged care facilities at a much later time in life. The cost to the taxpayer today is currently $15 billion dollars and rising. This has incentivised the federal government to introduce legislation designed to keep people staying in their homes as long as possible.
The ecosystem that is Aged Care in Australia is, by any measure, extremely complex. Providers of Aged Care find themselves increasingly mired in legislative frameworks that each come with their own strict sets of obligations.
This presentation addresses the vital role that innovative technology will play should we hope to have a sustainable future in care requirements. But more importantly, it credits the kind of environment and the type of “required thinking” that nurtures such outcomes.

As a renowned innovator, Health Metrics, an Australian based software house has developed a suite of systems that manage the functions of Aged Care providers, for Residential Aged Care Facilities, and for in Home Care. Using smart technology, predictive analytics, and spatial data; providers of Health Care and Aged Care, now, more than ever, have the opportunity to use data in ways that will not only increase efficiencies, but also improve care outcomes.
